Machaca Keto Breakfast Muffins

Machaca Keto Breakfast Muffin By The Nourished Caveman - 3Keto Breakfast Muffins are a great breakfast option to make ahead!

My readers and my patients seem to be always hungry for new easy and convenient breakfast options.

Especially when you have a family, a job, life gets busy and it is not always easy to make the best choices first thing in the morning.

I love breakfast ideas that can be made ahead and can be even conveniently packed with you or stuffed in a lunch box.

I always prefer a savory breakfast, full of good fats and protein, so it will help you stabilize your blood sugars for the day and cut cravings!

You can serve them with your favorite guacamole, with plain avocado or with

Ready made Machaca: A great Keto Paleo ingredient!

I was recently approached by The People’s Choice Beef Jerky company, which is located close to me in Los Angels.

They sent me some of their products to sample and I was really impressed by the quality of their ingredients!

One of the samples made me really happy: the shredded beef jerky Machaca!

It has all the right ingredients:  Beef, water, salt, spices, garlic. That’s it!

It also contains 16grams of protein per serving, and only 1 gram of carbs! What a perfect ingredient for our keto paleo lifestyle!

You can add it to scrambled eggs, to a stir fry, and makes a great addition for these breakfast muffins.

Another great low carb option from The People’s Choice is the Old Fashioned Beef Jerky – with 15gr of protein, 2.5gr of fat and only 1gr of carbs per serving!

    I wish you had total carbs. As a Keto person I prefer total. 20/day.

      You are very welcome to add the fiber and the net carbs yourself to find the whole macros…or you can calculate them on My Fitness Pal with your own exact ingredients. My macros are just a general reference point, no macros will be exact unless you input the ingredients YOU used! 🙂

    Hi Vivica,

    I am french, unfortunately in France, we don’t have so many topics about keto diet. (How I should say: it is not our cup of tea)
    I leave in a south of France and to be honest people prefer ”mediterranean diet”, in short, it is more natural!!
    Since a few days I try to find some tips and recipies . (thanks to my english :-))
    I would like to start a keto diet in a couple of weeks. but it is difficult to find something to help me like meal plan and macro …….
    I came accross your blog and I realized that is very important to have macro with recipe, especialy when you are beginner.
    so thank you for your work and I hope I could look up and take some ideas to help me in my adventure.
    MARILYNE a new fan

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Thank you Marilyne!! You know I was born in Sanremo?? So I am very familiar with that diet, just eliminate grains, sugar and fruit and you will already be doing MUCH better!!!
      Merci for the kind words too 🙂
